Free Extreme Wheels sessions for youngsters in Bolsover are continuing to be a rolling success.

The sessions, funded by Bolsover District Council, and Derbyshire police, are taking place every Friday evening at Hornscroft Park until 13th June.

Activities including cycling, karting, body zorbing and laser quest are put on for all local youngsters aged seven and over.

Officers from the local Safer Neighbourhood policing teams also call in to chat to the youngsters, parents, or sometimes even join in.

Pc Pete Harley of the Bolsover Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team has been supporting the events. He said: “The Extreme Wheels sessions have been really popular, with sometimes more than 50 attending, some accompanied by parents.

“I think they have been fantastic because they have been free, and allow all children to take part of all ages and from all different backgrounds. The Extreme Wheels staff, who run the sessions, have a great rapport with the youngsters and it is great to see the enjoyment had by all.”

To take part youngsters need to have a parent or guardian complete a consent form, which are available at the sessions.
